Reading Time: 2 minutes

COVID19 and coronavirus had us thinking if it would ever go away or not and we can put all the blame on it for not going away. Do we ourselves take care of the precautionary measures? Do we bother to consider social distancing? Have we made sanitizers and handwashing a part of our lives?. We need to questions ourselves first if we are doing everything right. If the answer is YES, then you are a part of those who actually want to get back to normal asap. But, if your answer is NO, then you have to start following these 3 simple steps to help flatten the curve as soon as possible. To make these steps work, at least 50 percent of the population needs to adopt them.

According to a study, these simple steps may drastically help reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2.

The 3 Simple Steps

All of you must be wondering what those 3 steps that we’ll have to follow and what is so special about it. Well, there isn’t something special about it and the best thing is that these 3 steps are the same ones that you have been asked to follow since the pandemic has started.

The three steps are:

  • Hand washing
  • Physical distancing
  • Wearing a mask

Can it be more simple?

The best thing is, according to some health professionals, we can beat this even without a vaccine. The doctors say, even if enough people take steps to at least protect themselves and their health, it can decrease the transmission risk. Considering these steps can drastically reduce the spread of COVID19. Moreover, it is important that more than 50% of the population adopt and practice these measures regularly.

These three simple steps have proven to be effective on their own, but, when they are combined, it becomes an ultimate threat against COVID-19.

The fastest spread of germs is through other people or surfaces. Whenever you touch your face with your unwashed hands, touch the surfaces, blow nose, cough, or sneeze into your hands and then touch other people and things without washing hands, it can transmit germs really quickly.

Are We Going Back To Normal Anytime Soon?

Social distancing and wearing a mask when people are around and following the handwashing routine is the best combination and the most effective way to reduce the risk of infecting.

To be honest, no one likes a lockdown. It is frustrating for everyone. The sad reality is that we have to follow this otherwise there is no hope or prayer of our lives getting back to normal. But if we work hard there’s a slight chance we can make our lives get back to normal in less time than expected. For this, it is important that we stay home, stay safe and take care of all the precautionary measures. Use telemedicine and contact your healthcare provider through video call in case of any emergency.
